Elizabeth Cooley

Hey Andrean! My name is Elizabeth Cooley, and I am the Feature Editor for The Acropolis. As a junior, this is my second year writing for the newspaper. My love for writing began at St. Mary’s in Crown Point and it continues to grow as I write here at Andrean. Aside from being on the news staff, I am also in Decathlon, spell bowl, academic Super Bowl, band, student ambassadors, Red Crew, Spanish club, Spanish Honors Society, yearbook, and guitar club. Thanks for visiting our website and for giving us your support!
